Great Value, Must have Report this review

Great Book! Bio's really make this a great collection. The negative is the paper quality. The pages are so thin, like bible pages, that they can easily tear if you are not careful. Although over 600 pages the thickness is the same as a 300 page book. Other than that, it is fantastic. The over size large print make it a wonderful book to muse through.

Enjoying the book. Great way to grow in knowledge that you can use to developed your own ideas. History and the performer's versions are real interesting.

Modern Mentalism's Origen of Concept Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2020
I have only had the book for a day, so I this is not an in-depth review, but it does not take an expert to recognize the value in owning this book. To add context I will refer to the following analogy; It is the difference between operating a smart device with proficiency and being only mildly aware of the technology behind it. In fact the majority of smart device users are completely oblivious to the technology. This does not make them any less proficient in it's use, but the question as to how such as device is even possible is unimportant. The only thing that matters is it is...

If the historical rational, theory, inventiveness, and concept of origin is import to the practitioner, then this book is important, otherwise continue to do what works best... There is no harm, no foul either way.

I will also comment on the quality of the book itself. The pages are thin .08 mm to be exact and the book is 10 x 8.5 inches large. The cover itself is a glossy print and is of average construction typical of a book in this price range. I would not put this in the coffee table category. This book is best suited for desktop reading.

I very much enjoyed this book. it is both informative, and amusing. it is a wonderful thing to see the history of mentalism, and mentalists. even better to then learn the skills that made so many of them famous (Infamous?)

A little overrated... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 25th, 2018
I didn't even bother with the Encyclopedia part, I was only after the 13 steps. After awhile, you realise that so many of these tricks require things that are out of date nowadays. A lot of the props that seem natural are aboslutely not normal anytime. Also, some tricks require a riduculous amount of skill and you ask yourself "That won't actually work, right? And no, they don't actually work(most of them). Yes, there are a few hidden gems, but I would definately not consider it "the Bible of Mentalism".
Sorry, but it's not THAT good.
